She (Brazil's president Dilma Rousseff) launched a veritable tirade against the United States and the NSA spy program. She accused them of meddling and basically violating the national sovereignty of a friendly nation.

She (Brazil's president Dilma Rousseff) said Brazil is now taking steps to protect its own communications within its own borders, but she also urged the United Nations to step in and take a lead role in doing something similar on the global stage, developing a framework to protect communications from unilateral activities.

What we have before us, Mr. President, is a serious case of violation of human rights and civil liberties. A case of invasion and capture of confidential secret information pertaining to business activities. And above all, a case of disrespect to the national sovereignty of my country. We have let the U.S. government know about our protest by demanding explanations, apologies and guarantees that such acts or procedures will never be repeated again.
Dilma Rousseff
President of Brazil

She urged the UN to join Brazil in building a new internet framework that protects the privacy and sovereignty of all nations. “Brazil will put forth proposals aimed at establishing multilateral civil framework for internet governance and use. As well as measures to insure effective protection of the data and information trafficking through the internet.”
